Back Up to Work
”The course was of a very high quality – I have been on many courses including management training, leadership skills and so on. This was easily one of the best I have attended, with fantastic hospitality from the host company, an incredible venue and interesting and engaging content from start to finish.”

If you are not in employment, volunteering or training, then Back Up to Work is for you.
This course is not about finding a job for you, but is about equipping you with the knowledge and confidence you need to work towards your employment goals.
Listen to Mariam, who went on a course recently, explain the benefits:
The courses are run by Back Up in partnership with Helen Cooke, Director and founder of My+ Consulting and Becky Hill, both HR professionals with extensive knowledge and experience. Helen and Becky are both spinal cord injured themselves.
Each course is hosted by a partner company whose staff often get involved in aspects of the course such as practice interviews – importantly, though, they too are there to learn.
Back Up to Work offers you the chance to:
- Reveal your talents and enhance your CV
- Receive advice on job hunting, including advice on how/when to declare a disability
- Practice your interview techniques with real recruiters in a supportive and encouraging environment
- Be put in touch with specialists for benefits and financial support and advice
We also offer tailored one-to-one support post-course based on your goals and aspirations.
